Building upon the success of its RIEGL-based True View 3D Imaging Systems (3DIS), GeoCue is offering a new survey-grade 3D imaging system that includes a LiDAR sensor and two cameras, and is more compact, lighter and can be used with more drones.
The new True View 645/650 system delivers colorized LiDAR deliverables with accuracy better than 3cm Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE) for the True View 645, and better than 2cm for the True View 650.
“True View 3D imaging products provide fully integrated LiDAR sensors and photogrammetric cameras in a completely calibrated package,” said GeoCue CEO, Frank Darmayan. “The newest True View 645/650 includes a Riegl mini VUX3-UAV and dual mapping cameras. It’s even lighter and more compact than previous models; that means it can be used with more drones, such as the very popular DJI M300.”
Combined with GeoCue’s industry-leading integrated data processing software suite, True View EVO, all GeoCue 3DIS include the full post-processing software workflow, including direct integration with Applanix POSPac.
Vivien Heriard Dubreuil, CEO of parent company mdGroup, said, “The integrated software and workflow generate fully geo-referenced, point-traced, colorized point clouds; it actually takes less time than it takes to fly the project.”
True View EVO supports the direct creation of many standard project deliverables including ground classified point clouds, surface models, contours, Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), volumetric analysis, wire extraction and similar products without the need for additional third-party software.
True View 645/650 is equipped with the RIEGL miniVUX-3UAV laser scanner. The miniVUX-3UAV, a 360° rotating mirror scanner, increases the scanner frequency to 300 kHz and offers a unique mode where the 200,000 pulse per second scan rate is focused in a 120° cross-track field of view, providing significantly increased point densities in aerial mapping applications. This increased density, along with GeoCue’s integrated mapping cameras, provides stunning colorized point clouds bringing collected data to life.
GeoCue Director of Business Development, Madelyne McNab, says “By reducing the weight of our previous generation system, customers can now simultaneously collect survey-grade LiDAR data and imagery on platforms from DJI, Harris Aerial, Inspired Flight, Skyfront, Freefly and Watts Innovations. It’s just another example of how the GeoCue team rapidly adapts to meet the demands of our customers.”
